What To Do When You Have An Afternoon and Evening In Toronto:

 

With a cancelled trip to Collingwood on Saturday, Alexjwilson.com found himself with a free afternoon on a Saturday in Toronto.

 

After cheating and squeezing in an appointment at 1:00 pm, the afternoon began.

 

First we stared the day with brunch at a restaurant called Bumpkins, which is located on Gloucester just off of Yonge between Wellesley and Bloor. This would be a place I would bring my Grandmother and Grandfather for Brunch. It was a significant departure from my regular Drake brunch on Queen West.

 

Next on was an adventure in Yorkville to check out the Icefest but first to keep our energy going, we stopped by Prairie Girl Bakery for cupcakes and a sugar high. The ice sculptures were impressive. Even though the theme was "Heat Wave", it reminded us how cold it was and we hurried our way through. Here are some pictures from the event:

After a brief trip to the Flagship Loblaws at Maple Leaf Gardens to stock up on groceries, we then headed to New York City import Momofuku at the Shangri-La Hotel, for noodles and their famous Crack Pie.

  

To cap the night off, we visited the legendary Toronto Second City. If you were there - yes it was Alexjwilson.com you saw getting dragged on stage to promptly perform in a skit which included him doing a solo dance to Crazy in love.

 

WE REACHED OUR GOAL - $5,000.00

We will be hosting a dinner service at the Red Door Family Shelter soon. We will keep you updated on the date. Big thanks for Treeline Catering for providing their delicious food. Gifts and care packages will also be purchased and distributed.

A Great Investment:                                       

The average resale at Bay near Grenville is $730/Sq.Ft.

 

Canderel Built College Park Condos Average Re-sale is $775/Sq.Ft.

 

Canderel Building YC Condos Average Sales Price is $683/Sq.Ft.

 

Therefore YC Condos is selling on average nearly $100 less per. Sq.Ft. than it's neighbour at College Park.  

 

Canderel is offering built in equity for investors by selling below market value.
